Abstract

Publication of the report of Bergman et al. should stimulate replications by others. If these investigators' findings are confirmed, and clear guidelines for the care of premature infants in the kangaroo method in the first 6 h and beyond are published, with particular attention to warm coverings for the babies' backs, this research could benefit large numbers of premature infants in the Third World.

CONCLUSION:

As the authors indicate, skin-to-skin contact from the birth of premature infants may also be a good alternative in First World settings.
